An Update On Brad, Feb. 10, 2008

My oldest Son, Brad, finished his third round of chemo last week. He had sailed through the first 2 with a minimum of discomfort, but had a couple of bad days with this last one. He’s over it now and feels fine.

Brad and a nice buck we rattled up in 2006.

We visited his Oncologist last Friday and he told us that the lesions on Brad’s lungs had been reduced! Praise the Lord! He said one spot on Brad’s vertebrae wasn’t reduced and that some tumors respond slower to chemo that others. The doc recommended radiation to eliminate the spot.

We then visited his Radiologist and were told the treatment would be a 10 to 15 minute “shot” daily for 15 days and this procedure, for this type of tumor, had over a 90% chance of success! This radiation procedure is not nearly as destructive and painful as Brad’s first treatments, 2 years ago.

I’ll be with him most of the time and will have an update around March 1. In the meantime, keep praying for Brad and expecting a miracle! His faith remains unshakable and he has been blessed with the Peace of Jesus!

Thank all of you all for your prayers!

As in the past, I will pre post some stories on Outdoor Odyssey, but since I will be out of town, the frequency of postings will slow down and my visits to other blogs will be minimal.
